Edit: Thanks for all your lovely words of support! Please check out my second blog post today to see the final results of today’s Flash animation project. 🙂
Once upon a time, a long time ago in San Francisco’s Chinatown, I went to a great restaurant with some friends. We sat in a booth that was closed off with curtains. It felt like we were on the Orient Express! 😀
At that meal, not only was the food, service and company great, but I got the best fortune cookie fortune in my life. It read: If you don’t fail at least 3 times a day, you’re not really trying.
Believe it or not, that fortune changed my life! Before then, I was rather cautious and not willing to take risks for fear of failure. Suddenly my perception of the word “failure” turned from negative to positive.
As you know, I’m in the process of learning Adobe Flash. My first few animations turned out pretty well. However, this latest one is a bit of a struggle to say the least! 😀
I want to share with you this “work on progress.” It is not finished yet, but I’m going to take a little break from debugging the code and I wanted you to see it before it’s completed. When it’s done, there are still some surprises left, so I don’t mind showing you this part of the process.
Today’s screencap choice comes to us at the request of Dhana. She is one of my favorite failures, LOL! She is constantly trying new things. You may have seen some of her animated gifs she made as a result of the tutorial I posted recently. Dhana also has a new blog, the cleverly titled “Do I Have a Blog?” if you want to take a peek.
And now here is the Animated Flash project in progress. I will post the finished product as soon as possible. 🙂 Hope you enjoy this little taste. Click the image or the text link below to be taken to my external website which hosts my Flash projects.
As you can see, I have not yet finished getting the “Hats” button to function properly. I have learned a lot along the way and I will keep trying! 😀
See you soon, I hope! Ciao for now.
